SCRIPT PREVIEW
Synopsis
Spare and thoughtful, this piece will capture you with its stillness, its haunting music, its shadowy darkness and the holy solemnity of a pounding gavel pronouncing irreversible judgment. Includes the seven last words of Christ coupled with fascinating parallels from Psalm 23. Though the Lord is our Shepherd, he first became the lamb through his crucifixion. Even those who wanted to be bystanders at that time, like Simon of Cyrene, were compelled to take part in his story – as are we. Nobody is a bystander! Many Holy Week programs journey with Jesus from the courtroom to the cross – but this one retraces Jesus’ route backward, from cross to courtroom. This short play’s small cast with gender flexibility and novel approach will challenge you.
